Good morning everyone,

I would like to to have some confirmation and feed backs from those who had build Russian Trumpeter's armor. I actually plan to buy T-80BV, a T-90 (maybe T-90C w/ dozer from Meng) and a T-90MS Tagil (maybe from Tiger Model). In order to have more information about all the kits, I went directly to the websites of each company.
On Trumpeter's one I was surprised by the amount of parts they claim having produced :
- T-90MS Tagil : +1k parts.
- T-90A : 1350 parts.
- T-90 : 1300 parts.
- T-72BM 1990 : 1290 parts.
- No info found for T-80BV and T-72M4CZ.
For comparison, the MINIART T-54B with full interior 1030 parts. So...??
Thanks' in advance.

I built the Trumpeter T-90 with cast turret. The parts count is high, but most of those parts are tracks and ERA blocks on the turret, plus tiny etch pieces that go on each block. It is a little tedious to build but comes out looking very nice.
